Do you panic anytime you see a check engine light? Afraid of seeing your paycheck drained away from a single trip to the mechanic? This app will soon be your new best friend. FIXD Automotive sensors plug into the dash of your car, connecting the engine to your iOS or Android device. The app diagnoses any of the 6,800 reasons your check engine light turns on. You can get your car serviced knowing what the issue is before even stepping foot in a mechanic's shop. Aside from being a handy problem prognosticator, it also provides you with a health history of your car. You can even check it remotely if a friend of family member is using the vehicle. https://www.facebook.com/dailydot/videos/775020096029758/ In addition to helping you understand your car's health, the app encourages you to take care of it for the future. FIXD sets oil change and maintenance reminders so you have fewer surprise issues later down the road. You can rest assured that FIXD does not sell this information to third parties. The company uses industry leading safety protocol to protect your vehicle's data. No need for a state of the art set of wheels: FIXD works with any model made in the last 20 years.  The app is free to download and the sensors are available for $59. If you're buying for the family, you can buy one sensor and get the second half off. Buy it here MORE BAZAAR DEALS:
